  • End of 2nd Half
90+3' 

That's it. Full time. Arsenal rested players, and you can ask why they did that now. PSG took advantage of some dodgy defending, and while Arsenal were able to hit back, and then take the lead, it all seems like a bit of a wasted opportunity. Arsenal need a better result than PSG get in their final group if they want to top their group.

90+1' 

Verratti releases Jese behind the defence, but Koscielny is on hand to block the shot. Corner on the right wing.

90' 

There will be three minutes of stoppage time.

89' 

Jese has room for a shot, which he smacks at Gibbs.

PSG are now playing possession football in Arsenal's half. They are the better side.

86' 

PSG happy to just whack it long, now.

84' 

Meunier deals with the advancing Ozil with the minimum of fuss on the left wing, but PSG can't properly clear yet.

82' 

Cavani dives at a brilliant header from Moura, and it's just inches wide. Cavani would be lethal if he was any good.

Xhaka on for Iwobi, Walcott on for Coquelin.

79' 

Oh my days. Cavani is released down the inside right of the pitch, yards from everyone. All he needs to do is keep his head and beat the 'keeper. Instead he chips an effort off target that is claimed by Ospina. At the other end, Ramsey lashes wide.

  • Alex Iwobi

GOAL! Arsenal 2-2 PSG. Lucas scores - Corner for PSG on the left wing. Ben Arfa to take. It's a weird, deep cross that dips late and drops to Lucas. He nods gently towards goal, and Iwobi's terrible effort at blocking it, takes it away from Ospina.

75' 

Cavani is closing in on a cross just in front of the six-yard box, but Ospina grabs it off his toes. It's an important and brave interception.

73' 

Meunier's cross looks promising until it is soon deflected and picked out of the air by Ospina.

72' 

Jenkinson thighs away a cross after Sanchez loses the ball near his area. PSG are coming back now.

71' 

Motta lines up a shot and skies it. Steven Gerrard is with us in spirit.

66' 

Lucas's corner is cleared, and Arsenal break. It is given away and PSG rush up the other end until Cavani, chipping the ball over the top as badly as Rooney does, is called offside.

65' 

Corner for PSG on the right. Ben Arfa to come on shortly.

64' 

Motta tumbles on the edge of the box, and while that is waved away too, it's much less clear how valid the claim is.

63' 

Cavani attempts a pathetic dive that everyone rightly is disgusted by.

62' 

Motta strides forward, the ball is worked to Cavani on the right of the pitch, and he sends in what is either an awful cross or an awful shot.

  • Marco Verratti

Arsenall win two corners in quick succession. The second will be from the right wing from Ozil.

Ramsey releases Jenkison on the right. His cross is missed by Sanchez and finds Giroud at the back post, and he lashes a shot against a defender.

Cavani runs over the ball, and Lucas clips a curling effort that flies wide of the goal and whips in violently to flick off the top of the goalframe.

Lucas robs Koscielny, and is scythed down about 25 yards from goal for his trouble. That's a bookin'.

51' 

Iwobi curls in a cross with his right foot, from the left wing, for Giroud, but it's cut out and cleared.

50' 

Apparently Koscielny has not lost a game for Arsenal since they went out of the Champions League.

48' 

PSG again decide to try to play themselves out of trouble at the back, despite being closed down, and lose possession to a throw-in on the left wing.

47' 

Ozil chases down Areola who hits it long, into the Arsenal defence.

GOAL! Arsenal 1-1 PSG. Giroud scores - A calm penalty from Giroud, slotting the ball to the keeper's right as he dived the other way.

45+1' 

Ramsey and Cavani act like children. Ramsey claims he's hit in the chin. He wasn't.

45' 

PENALTY! Giroud wins the ball off PSG on the edge of the pitch. He finds Sanchez in the box, and Krychowiak then compounds the error by taking him down in the box.

43' 

Giroud is in the middle of the box for a chipped ball forward, but Areola comes out quickly to collect it.

42' 

Jenkinson is set up for a cross on the right by Sanchez. There are players waiting, but he slaps the ball over the goal and out for a goalkick.

40' 

Motta intercepts Sanchez with a timely intervention near the edge of the box. Sanchez is after a foul but the ref is not interested. Moments later, Silva puts a pass towards Giroud, which he misses, behind for a corner.

38' 

PSG now have the ball in defence, and have been impressive in possession across the whole pitch. They're not cowed by pressure.

36' 

PSG are sitting back as Arsenal probe impotently.

Marquinhos is in the book for a pretty cynical hack of Sanchez as the Chile forward tried to lead a break.

30'

Giroud flicks the ball into the path of Aaron Ramsey who has got beyond the Arsenal forward and into the box. Thiago Silva comes across to meet the run of the Wales midfielder and gets a foot to the ball. Ramsey goes down and while the home fans roar for a penalty, the referee, Dr. Felix Brych, is having none of the appeals.

27' 

Sanchez lifts the ball over the PSG defence for the run of Jenkinson but it has too much on it and Areola clears.

25' 

Arsenal have had just 40% of the ball thus far...

24' 

Ozil gets in behind the PSG defence and attempts to thrash the ball across the box. The ball, however, comes back off Meunier and onto the German international before trickling out for a goal kick.

21' 

Jenkinson leads a break down the right exchanging passes first with Ozil and then Sanchez but Maxwell manages to stick out a foot and deflect it out off the Arsenal man for a throw.

19' 

PSG have another corner that Lucas again whips in with pace but Arsenal clear.

PSG having the better of it here…

15'

SERIOUS CHANCE! PSG win a corner that Lucas swings in and Cavani is completely free but his header is cleared off the line by Gibbs.

14' 

Iwobi is in down the left and he has Gibbs wide of him. The Arsenal youngster ignores the run of the left-back but is crowded out.

12' 

Lucas gets in down the right and he clips the ball in but it is far too close to Ospina.

10' 

They have made a decent start here, PSG.

9' 

Thomas Meunier whips a delicious ball into the box but it is just out of reach of Edinson Cavani.

8' 

Coquelin orchestrates a little triangle of passes in the middle of midfield but again Arsenal lose it centrally. They need to improve here.

6' 

Ospina, Arsenal’s Champions League keeper, has had a few early touches to settle any nerves. The Gunners have been loose in possession but PSG have done little with the ball thus far.

4' 

Ramsey gets caught on the ball inside his own half but is then straight back up to win the ball back. PSG throw.

2' 

PSG start with a spot of possession as they try to take the sting out of what is a fervent crowd.

Arsenal get the match started.

19:40 

The winners of this match will finish first in Group A - last season, seven of eight group winners successfully negotiated the last. Big game, then.
